The holidays can cause a lot of unnecessary stress. Whether it's getting the perfect gift, cooking too much food or trying to get your mother-in-law not to criticize every ornament on your tree. It's all just too much!

Let the booze that helps you get through the holidays, also offer the simplest recipe. This mulled wine is made in a crockpot so you just pour everything in and let it do its thing! Even better? I've discovered a blend of mulling spices that eliminates a ton of the work that goes into mulled wine but still offers all the taste.

Cheers to a warm and tipsy holiday season!



  1. Make the tea according to package directions. Let it steep and cool slightly. Add to CrockPot or a large saucepan over low heat.
  2. Add the red wine and bourbon.
  3. Fill mulling ball or tea bag with mulling spice blend and place in the crockpot.
  4. Add sugar to taste.
  5. Heat in the crock pot on low for approximately 3 hours, or until warmed.
    (Be sure to watch that the wine mixture doesn't boil.)
  6. Ladle into mugs and serve.
